Story of Baby Titna

Hello Everyone!!!..My sincere apologies on the delay of updating the blog. Apparently,something has gone wrong with the template!!*Owh no!!*Well, took me 2 days to get it back to the current state..but there still are some flaws with the layout, my blog entries tend to repeat them self. I'm working on getting it back as well as looking for an identity for my blog to match my style of writing, this is where it has brought me thus far.

 I have been extra buzy with the year end camps for the kids in St.Anne's Church in Klang and the St.Francis of Assisi in Cheras. I have been doing this every year since I was 7. I am in charge of Music and Movement, Praise and Worship/Action Song -Dancing.You could watch a video of me and my team here.
Some of the kids working on their arts and craft

I also do help out with the underprivileged kids whenever I can or when my team needs a helping hand. Here's a story of a little girl who touched my heart. Everyone,meet TITNA. Titna is a very bubbly 11 month old baby girl. Her parents abandoned her in the dumpster when she was born because of her deformity. If you look at the picture below, you would see that Titna's hands and legs have not been completely formed. We were told by the guardian that her hands and legs have been like this since birth. She also has a Cleft Palate, operation has been done, and now she can breath and sound properly*she cannot speak yet*.
Here's a picture of Titna with Joanne

Titna lives in Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Klang Selangor (Handicapped and Disabled Children's Association of Klang Selangor). She lives in a home with 77 other children with various disabilities ranging from Dyslexia,Down Syndrome,Mental Retardation, Child Phychosis,Conginetal,Spactic and a whole lot more. From our conversation with several of the guardians, they say that some of the children who live there, have parents who come and visit them occasionally,whilst some have parents who voluntarily leave their kids at the home because they can't care for them.

I was a little reluctant to take pictures as I did not want them to be the subject of pity. A statement I must make though, is that they are very very innovative. During our visit there, I just stood in awe as I watched them work together to mount a TV on the wall outside,in the dining area. It was really mind boggling because one of them were deaf and dumb, the other was down syndrome, it was kind of hard to tell what the few other helpers were suffering from but they just mounted the TV on the wall in about 20 minutes while I stood there watching them dumbfounded.

Upon our arrival, we were each given a booklet.

 The booklet contained details of each child defining their name,gender, disability and date of birth. The reason as to why they have stated the date of birth of the kids, is so that donors may send the presents to the kids on their birthday. 

Together with the booklet we were also handed this piece of paper that gives you a brief summary of the monthly consumption of the whole household. Gee, that's some list man!! They need all the help they can get!! At the rate they are going, their stock is running low really fast!

You can get in touch with Mr.Morgun who is the founder of Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Klang Selangor.

No 4,Lorong Bunga Raya,Kg Raja Uda,42000 Port Klang,Selangor.

If anyone out there who wants to go visit the place or need more information about them,feel free to drop me an e-mail, and I will get back to you! Help me help them!!! Spread the word please..:)
